Prep Time: 3 hours
- 2 cups (12 oz) white chocolate chips
- 1 can (16 ounces) vanilla frosting
- yellow and orange (or red) food coloring
1. Prepare an 8x8 pan by lining it with aluminum foil and spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Place 4 ounces (about 2/3 cup) white chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until melted, about 1-1/2 minutes, stirring halfway through the cooking time.
3. Stir until the chocolate is a smooth paste. Once the chocolate is smooth, add approximately 1/3 of the frosting and a few drops of yellow food coloring. Stir to combine, and adjust the coloring amount until you get a yellow you are satisfied with.
4. Pour the yellow fudge into the prepared pan and refrigerate until mostly set, about 30 minutes. The fudge does not have to be rock hard, but should be set enough so that it doesn’t move when the pan is tilted.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, but use orange food coloring instead. If you don’t have orange coloring, use yellow and red color in a 2:1 ratio. Pour the orange-colored fudge over the yellow fudge, smooth it in an even layer, and return to the refrigerator to allow the new layer to set.
6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 once more, this time omitting any food coloring, so that the top layer is white. Pour the white fudge over the orange layer and return to the refrigerator once more. After it has set for about 10 minutes, lightly score it into 1-inch squares, and press a candy corn into the center of each square. Return the fudge to the refrigerator and allow it to set fully, about 2 hours.
7. To serve, cut the fudge into 1-inch squares. Be sure to use a large knife with a smooth blade, and wipe the blade frequently to ensure that the sides of the fudge squares do not get smeared with other colors. Stored in an airtight refrigerated container this fudge will last for up to a week.
Christmas is a time to accumulate clutter. Not only do toy boxes get over filled but so do Christmas storage boxes, photo tubs and even that sweater drawer as we pick up one more decoration or one more ornament.
Andrea Steed shares this article over at Scrapjazz on “how to archive your holiday cards and letters”.
I must admit I don’t actually get too many letters anymore,I guess I could print out my e-mails and keep those safe for reminiscing later in life.
Andrea’s concept is pretty basic but it is a great idea and with a little creativity I am sure you can come up with something fantastic.
more patterned pines christmas cards in traditional colors this time. I really love the distressed look, I am sure everyone doesnt like them but, I really do love the way the inking looks. Do you think I overdo it? I kind of think the distressed inking look is my style. What do you think?
